Discover the birth of contemporary and modern art originating from non other than it’s capital Colombo. Witness its evolution through half a century inspiring and captivating young talent from around the island.
The tour will start off at the house of an artist and then proceed to The Sapumal Foundation where we will explore their private collection and focus on four key artists who contributed immensely to the arts circle in Colombo. Then we have a brief stop at Saskia Fernando’s art gallery before driving past the works of Colombo’s Street Art Painters. Our next stop is the AOD Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, where we get in insight to the story of the present arts movement in the city. We conclude our tour by appreciating an exhibition of art at the Barefoot Gallery.
We can tailor make the experience for families with children where the kids get to have a hands on painting class with your host at their residence. Your host will also do their explanations at the arts galleries you will be visiting in a way the kids will also understand the story of art in Colombo.
